Description

Retinal Detachment: Principles and Practice provides a historical review of current information on the diagnosis and treatment of retinal detachment. It is intended as both an introduction for graduate students in ophthalmology and a concise review or reference for practicing ophthalmologists. The volume defines the types of retinal detachments, their classifications and causes, and covers preoperative examination, preoperative management, prophylactic procedures, surgery, complications of surgery, and results of reattachment surgery. It also includes a historical introduction, suggested readings at the end of each chapter, and the classic article 'The Technique of Binocular Indirect Ophthalmoscopy,' by Morten L. Rosenthal.show more

Review quote

..".well written and easy to understand. The diagrams, photographs, and tables are helpful and of great quality and facilitate the comprehension of the different topics...The authors have remained objective while covering all the topics....I highly recommend the book to general ophthalmologists who wish to revisit the subject, and I strongly suggest that all ophthalmology residents and new surigcal retina fellows should read this book early in their training."--Reviewed by Felipe De Alba, MD, Department of Ophthalmology, Loyola University Medical Center, Maywood, Illinois, in JAMA ."..well written and easy to understand.
